The politicians of the UK’s governing Conservative Party will hold a vote of no-confidence in Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday that could remove him as Britain’s leader as well as the head of the Conservative Party.
Party official Graham Brady said he had received enough letters from Members of Parliament demanding a vote on Johnson’s leadership to trigger one. That happens if 54 Tory politicians – 15 percent of the party’s group in the House of Commons – write to Brady.
“The threshold of 15 percent has been passed,” Brady said. He said the vote would take place in person in the House of Commons on Monday between 6pm and 8pm (17:00-19:00 GMT).
